It's the season of love and everyone just wants to feel good during the month of February. Whether it's feeling good about yourself or making others feel good about themselves. Single ladies, Moms, and even men need a little bit of love...So A Lucky Ladybug has a few brands and products to help you this Valentine's Day!
A Shiny New Gift
What girl doesn't love jewelry?! Even those laid back chicks like myself still love getting a little gift which makes her sparkle. Now is the time to splurge a little on her with the "Love" Disk Charm with Diamond. "Helen Ficalora’s signature designs inspire beauty, love and peace. Timeless pieces crafted from beautiful Yellow, Pink and White Gold with diamond accents reflect an appreciation for nature and organic form. The collection resonates with women seeking unique and customizable jewelry that expresses their personal stories."
The "Love" Disk Charm has been perfect for myself being that my birthday is two days after Valentine's Day and my daughters just before. While a bit too expensive for my taste, I love that the design is flexible enough to wear for a night out all dressed up or just dressed in jeans and a t-shirt. This jewelry really is gorgeous and can be worn by anyone at any stage of their life.

Get Comfy Together
Nowadays, most individuals enjoy some sort of gourmet coffee beverages, specialty tea, italian sodas, and other dessert beverages. BUT, who wants to spend the money going to Starbuck's or any other local establishment each and everyday to get those yummy snacks?! Not me and especially not when I can enjoy them in the comfort of my own home and at a fraction of the cost.
Thankfully one of my favorite brands has come to the rescue yet again with products which make this easy to do at home! The Ozeri Deluxe Stainless Steel Milk Frother and Whisk Set comes with it's own stand and four frothing attachments. Using a powerful metal frothing whisk instead of the traditional steam to create an amazingly whipped, creamy, frothy drink. The motor spins at over 15,000 RPMs mixing your drinks faster than you can imagine and just like the professionals do!
This all in one gadget can be used to make even cold drinks frothy and delicious! Plus using the attachments you can "whisk eggs, soups, dressings, sauces and other non-solid food items" as well as using the propeller-shaped attachment for mixing cocktails when entertaining guests. The stand allows it to hang dry safely and grab when you need it. We have ours displayed right next to the coffee machine for obvious reasons but have since bought a second one. The second one sits near the stove for whisking up other consumables!
I cannot begin to tell you how great this "little" appliance is. It is easy enough that anyone (and even most ages) can make a creamy beverage easily. It takes less than a minutes to froth and the foam that comes out of your frother is perfect! AND no longer do I have to spend tons of money for the drinks I enjoy so much. If you are a coffee addict or can tend to spend a little more money on those specialty drinks, this purchase is worth the money and pays for itself immediately.
Tea drinkers always seem to live a bit more of a stress free life. There is just something about buying different tea pots and accessories to drink the huge variety of loose leaf tea that you can find available. Drinking loose leaf tea can sometimes be quite tricky. Keeping the tea where it's supposed to be and not in your mouth. There's nothing worse than tasting the tea grinds and ruining your glass.
What if you could have your loose leaf tea and drink it happily too?! Thankfully Libre Tea has come up with not only a solution but a cute one at that. They have designed a health conscious line of glasses which sport a glass interior and durable poly exterior, perfect for #TeaMoments. Along with this, I love the meaning behind their name, "Libre (lee-brah)- The state of being free. Letting go, bringing one’s mind and body to a place of rest and free from restraint". This belief aligns perfectly with the lifestyle change I've been attempting #FitnFree16.
Not only are the designs absolutely beautiful and a cute way to carry your tea everywhere you go but they help keep your tea hot longer and the exterior cool to touch! The stainless steel filter is removable and easy to clean. They are even super easy to use and can be used for more than just loose leaf tea...try mixing lemons or cucumbers for a refreshing cool tasting drink too!

Simply Earth Essential Oils
Essential oils can be used for a variety of reasons from health and relaxation, to cleaning or air freshening. Using as little as a drop or two, they can be applied to different pressure points to help with different health concerns OR aid in relaxation possibly during a massage (hint hint). They sink into the skin with out a film or greasy feel are not irritating to even those with sensitive skin types (using a carrier oil is usually recommended).
Because I live for essential oils and believe they work better than most other products, I was thrilled to discover the brand Simply Earth. With a quality like any other "name brand" yet half the price, Simply Earth carries a variety of essential oils and essential oil products. This Valentine's Day, pamper yourself and your loved ones with a set of relaxing and stimulating essential oils. I've listed a few which might help get you started but there are tons to search through with even more uses than I can list in one post!
Orange essential oil added to a diffuser will work perfectly creating a "warm and happy" environment. A massage with grapefruit oil stimulates happiness, helping with tension and all around stress. Frankincense can also help during those massages with sore muscles, inflammation, and even blemishes. A bath with Lemongrass oil helps sooth those same muscular nerves and any pain your Valentine might have. Do not forget how great Lavender oil works as a sedative and antidepressant. Using Lavender oil in the bedroom helps you relax and promotes a more peaceful environment!
As if these weren't enough reasons to grab some essential oils from Simply Earth, this is a brand does more than provide you with high quality essential oils. They also donate 13% of the their profits to help end human trafficking!

Beauty for the Babes
While your rubbing down with essential oils, remember to cover all areas of the body with that pampering! Don't forget your feet are usually one of the most stressed areas of the body. Perhaps your relaxing yourself and adding to your routine or giving some special attention to the lady in your life, the NatraCure Deep Hydrating Booties are hard to turn down.
We all know pedicures, foot massages, and other foot treatments just aren't cheap. Having something at home to help with those stressful days and tired feet is quite important. The Deep Hydrating Booties are a moisturizing treatment for any stressed feet looking for some love this Valentine's Day. In less than 10 minutes you can toss these babies on for some serious softening without the mess of a paraffin wax treatment or slippery lotion.
The "SmartGel lining releases 7 therapeutic oils and ceramides that heal, hydrate, and protect your skin". Warmed in the microwave these are perfect for slipping on while you comfy up on the couch watching a movie together, during a massage, or even during a relaxing nap. While I felt like they were slippers which had an odd feeling while wearing them, they did leave my feet feeling super soft and the warmth relaxed my sore muscles! NatraCure offers a variety of therapy products for each area of the body for at home consumers.
Made from Earth
Just like our feet, our face needs a special kind of attention. In most cases, your face is the first impression (or we'd like to think), so we need to properly take care of it using only the best of ingredients. Made from Earth "line of organic skin care essentials contain the highest possible levels of organic ingredients and fruits".
Nothing appeals me more to a brand than learning the ingredients come from organic farms in their purest form. Made from Earth does not dilute or water down any ingredient, nor do they add fillers to their products (synthetic coloring agents, fragrances, or parabens). There are no toxic ingredients in their products and they "are 100% farmed and sourced in the USA."
Made from Earth Plant Stem Cell Therapy is perfect for keeping skin hydrated. Using high-potency stem cells, Plant Stem Cell Therapy improves your skins elasticity while supporting the natural production of collagen. Neither like a lotion or oil, this formula gave my skin a soft glow. I liked that it wasn't greasy and how well it helped with my puffy eyes after a long stressful day. Young or old, your skin will love how this formula gives you a firm and refreshed feeling.

Who hasn't spent time getting dolled up when out of nowhere the curling iron slips, burning you somewhere on the face or neck?? I know I've done it a thousand times and thankfully it's never scarred me. However, I can't say the same for my sisters. If you have even the smallest of scar, I can guess you would love to minimize or completely be rid of it.
"ScarAway's proven Advanced Silicone Technology simulates the natural barrier function of healthy skin, hydrating scar tissue to soften the scar, shrinking, flattening and fading it." The ScarAway Daily Discs are perfect size for small scars from burns, mole removal, or acne (I actually used them on my hands where I have a burn and knife scar). Beyond easy to apply, these are thin and hardly noticeable, in fact I forgot I was wearing it.
While I love looking at the stretchmarks on my belly and the c-section incision because they are reminders of the beautiful babies I brought into the world, they still take away from the way I feel when naked. During the month of February, I want to feel my sexiest as do most women. So the ScarAway C-Section Scar Sheets are a perfect way to prep my body and my confidence for the holiday.
